Storyline

Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

Trivia

For the Floor Zero scenes, Production Designer Alex McDowell's team built two sets, which sat side-by-side, as if the screen had been sliced down the middle and folded open. When characters between the two worlds interact, the "down" scene takes place on one set and the "up" scenes takes place on the other, simultaneously. See more »

Goofs

Eden's hand and arm positions change between shots during the final scene in the movie, when she is kissing Adam. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam: The universe, so full of wonders. I could spend hours and hours looking up at the sky. So many stars, so many mysteries. And there's one very special star that makes me think of one very special person. Now let me tell you my story.

Fantastic
15 March 2013 | by (Plano, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with a couple of other friends, and this movie magically fits itself right into our love and outlook on life. I fell in love with this movie and learned a lot about myself watching it! I saw only beauty and truth in what this movie had to say! Definitely left me feeling like I was walking on a ceiling as well. Grateful this movie exists, for those with open hearts. Recommended to enjoy this movie: Be present. Be open. Be happy. Be aware. Be connected. Have fun. It is an adventure movie which asks you to join the ride. If you have no connection to this movie or pull to watch it after watching the preview, then it might not be a movie for you. Movies like this tend to target a certain audience who are willing to be inspired in life to move to the next level of consciousness. I have seen so many movies which have had not awesome reviews, and have taken my breath away with how connected to the film I was.

True beauty! Ready for lift-off when you enter the theater! :)
